- Soil-borne pathogens most likely to pose the greatest risk to cereal crops in the northern region during 2018 include crown rot, common root rot and root lesion nematodes.
- PREDICTA®B has added new tests for ascochyta blight and phytophthora root rot of chickpeas, yellow leaf spot and white grain disorder of wheat, fusarium stalk rot of sorghum, charcoal rot of summer crops and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF).
- Follow sampling recommendations in the manual V10 (Broadacre Soilborne disease manual), including the additional of pieces of stubble to improve the detection of stubble-borne pathogens.
- Frequently more than one soil-borne disease exists within a paddock with the interaction between pathogens (e.g. Pratylenchus thornei and crown rot) exacerbating losses. PREDICTA B is assisting pathologists to understand these interactions to advise growers on management options to limit the impact of these disease complexes.
